Ron Harborne Oval continuing to bat above the average with installation of field lights to provide greater flexibility of use
Moree Plains Shire Council will commence work at Ron Harborne Oval Cricket Field number four on Monday, 15 July 2019 to prepare for installation of new LED field lights as part of the fully grant funded lighting upgrade project at the Oval.
Moree Plains Shire Council was awarded funding for the project through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund to deliver local infrastructure projects that improve the quality of life for regional communities.
Moree Plains Shire Council’s Project and Development Manager, Ms Lila Fisher noted that Ron Harborne Oval is a premier multi-code, four-oval sporting facility, home to junior and senior competitions for cricket, netball, hockey and soccer servicing the Moree Plains.
“The new LED lighting and electrical upgrade project to Australia Standards will provide for greater and safer night time use of the facilities,” said Ms Fisher.
“This is a great outcome for the sporting clubs which use Ron Harborne Oval and Moree generally. Not many towns of our size could lay claim to such an impressive and professional facility.”
The Ron Harborne Oval cricket field is scheduled to reopen for public access and use of the field at the end of August 2019, weather permitting.
